La Mauvaise Foi

La liberté est ce que vous faites avec ce qui a été fait à vous.   (Freedom is what you do with what has been done to you) - Jean-Paul Sartre.   You try to wake up on time every morning. Sometimes you have had a good sleep, sometimes you haven’t, because you were anxious. You try to finish your morning routine as early as possible because you have to leave home by 8AM; to reach office by 9 AM. Office, a place where you spend at least 9 hours of your day, working on things that you probably do not even make use of. But they are important, because they are owned by someone else and they would sell it to other people and make money. You will have to help them make that money because a tiny fraction of that money becomes your salary. There is another person above you, whose primary job is to manage you and make sure you work as intended. You aspire to be that person someday, as he on the other hand, aspires to be the person above him. 

Ganesha Festival, Bangalore

For the last three years, I have been traveling to Mumbai for Ganesha festival. This year, I decided to head there during Dashera. I missed the excitement and celebration that happens in Mumbai during this particular festival. As compared to that, Bangalore was rather dull. Nevertheless, I got to get around the town to see people excited about bringing home their most adored God. I went to RV road to capture some beautiful idols of my favourite God. 

Gandhi Bazaar was full of road side stalls selling Banana plants, flowers and sugar cane. It was very lively there.

Preethi cooked some delicious food that we ate after offering to Lord Ganesha.

In the evening, I went to Yediyur lake to witness the visarjan but it was so crowded that I could not see anything in detail. 

I also visited the most famous Ganesh Utsav that happens every year in Basavangudi (Where I live). The "Pendal" was very impressive; somewhat in line with those in Mumbai.
